A Cultural Misadventure On The Kiwi OE

May 2005 – Jerome begins a journey across the continent, to explore the kiwi backpacking tradition and gain insights into the lives of the ordinary European in an attempt at cross cultural unity.

May 2006 – Jerome begins to understand why it didn’t work.
Uncover the answers to the Big Questions in the essential backpackers guide.

After his sell out success with Civilized in the 2005 ODDFELLOWS Comedy Festival, Jerome returns as an ODDFELLOWS Billy T Nominee with his first solo performance Backpackers’ Guide. In an hour show he will highlight his experiences from a Madrid bullfighting ring to confusing local Hungarians in an exploration of cultural misunderstanding. He’ll be sharing his tips for surviving suspicious hostels, rogue pickpockets and the French.

Beginning his stand up career with a 5 minute open mic spot in 2003, Jerome rapidly established himself as a key performer in the New Zealand comedy scene, going on to win the 2004 National Raw Comedy Quest, the premier amateur comedy award. With his “Killer one liners” he was voted Best Newcomer at the 2005 ODDFELLOWS NZ International Comedy Festival Awards.
